Would You Rather? Shoveling Snow

Would you rather shovel…

One driveway by yourself? Or four driveways with 2 friends. The driveway you would shovel by yourself is 8 feet wide and 30 feet long with snow 2 feet deep. The four driveways you would shovel with 2 friends are each 15 feet wide and 25 feet long with snow 1 foot deep.

Use pictures, models, words, numbers, or symbols to justify your choice.

I would rather shovel … because … 


If you were paid $15 for each driveway you shoveled, would that change your answer?


Create your own problem like this one. Share it with someone and ask them to explain their choice.
